The camp provides a choice of 3 Hillside Suites and 5 Riverside rooms. All of the accommodation boasts open fronts, to enhance the authenticity of the experience of a stay, as well as en suite bathrooms which possess flush toilets, showers and hot and cold running water. Perhaps one of the best things about a stay here is how close you feel to the surrounding wilderness, lying in your stone and thatch cottage, you can not only hear the hippos from your bed you can see them too.

Managers Steve and Lynn are wonderfully accommodating and ensure your stay is a memorable one, with romantic dinners spent under the stars, followed by drinks and laughs in the open lounge. Adjacent to the lounge and main area is the open air swimming pool, a perfect vantage point from which to view game at your leisure. Walking safaris can be particularly exhilarating; encountering elephant on-foot is guaranteed to be an adrenaline charged experience. Please note the camp is closed from mid-March to end of the end of May.
